GECOL: Linkage of western and eastern electric grids beneficial for all Libyan cities
The Head of the Control Department at the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) Abdel Rahaman Al-Jali said that the linking of the western and eastern electric grids will have positive results on all Libyan cities.
“Libyans will sense the difference once a failure or a damage happens to a certain area while another will be operating with power, so the GECOL will provide the first area with power through the linkage with the second area.” He explained.
Speaking on TV, Al-Jali added on Friday that connecting Benghazi and the Green Mountain’s grids with the western one will stabilize the general power network and decrease the hours of outage.
He hailed the efforts of the maintenance teams in east Libya, the supervision division of the GECOL, executive department and control department in eastern Libya, saying he thanks them for their professional performance, which was without any foreign companies’ assistance.
GECOL announced that electric grids that connect eastern and western regions were joined again after two years of severance due to clashes in Benghazi.
